Tupac Shakur's Screenplay To Become Featured Film

Afeni Shakur, Tupac's Mother, teamed up with Insomnia Media Group to produce this film. Production starts next March.

Imperial Valley, California (PRWEB) October 1, 2005 -- 2pac's mother Afeni shakur is set to start production for a screenplay written by her son Tupac Shakur, while he was in jail in 1995, next March.

The plot revolves around a black youth who becomes a drug kingpin, and later on in his life decides to go straight. "Live 2 Tell," is going to be produced as a feature film. The script was acquired by Insomnia Media Group from Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, who will be a producer on the film, which has yet to been casted.

Tupac, who has been the lead role in "Poetic Justice," "Above the Rim" and "Gridlock'd," had written "Live 2 Tell" for himself to star in. Unfortunately the rapper was gunned down on the Las Vegas Strip in 1996, and never had the opportunity. His murder remains unsolved.
